It seems that something’s been missing from New York’s dining scene. A bustling cluster of French-inspired markets, perhaps? Yes, that’s it. Rumor has it the void’s been filled in the form of Battery Park’s latest foodie megaplex, Le District.

With four “districts” and three dedicated dining destinations, Le District is a haven of all things French. Think charcuterie, pâtisserie, wines galore, and general gourmandises under one roof -- the quintessential French escapade, minus the trip overseas. Browse endless markets in between glasses of Châteauneuf at Le Bar and steak frites at Beaubourg, or take it outside for a killer view of the Hudson, café au lait in hand. We can’t promise it won’t become an obsession.

Contact your Attaché for information on Le District as well as Beaubourg reservations and menu highlights.
